DFC | Dundalk FC secure loan deal for Hungarian midfielder Adorjan

Former Liverpool youngster played in pre-season match in Spain

Dundalk have secured a loan move for Hungarian attacking midfielder Krisztián Adorján, who was on the books at Liverpool as a youngster.

The 25-year-old came off the bench in Dundalk’s 1–1 draw against Shanghai Shenxin in their pre-season friendly in Spain on Wednesday afternoon and is expected to join The Lilywhites until July.

His parent club, Italian Serie B outfit, Novaro Calcio, confirmed this morning that Adorjan was moving to Oriel Park after returning from a loan spell at Albanian club Partizani Tirana.

Adorjan began his career with MTK Hungaria in his home land before moving to Anfield in the summer of 2009, signing a professional contract 12 months later.

He was handed a first-team debut by Brendan Rodgers in Liverpool’s pre-season tour of the USA in 2012 but despite faring well with the club’s reserve side, he moved to Dutch side Groningen on a season long loan in July 2013.

He left Anfield ahead of the 2014–2015 season, signing for Italian Serie C outfit Novara Calcio but he was farmed out on loan to Albanian club Partizani Tirana last August, going on to play 12 games.

The Dundalk squad are currently in Spain on a five-day training camp. They face 2016 South Korean champions FC Seoul on Friday before returning to Ireland the following day.
